DPR Construction

Hope Builders is proud to count DPR Construction as a valued partner and Platinum sponsor of 10 Days for Launching Careers.

It’s a natural partnership since both DPR and Hope Builders “Exist to Build Great Things”—DPR as one of the nation’s leading technical builders focused on highly complex and sustainable projects, and Hope Builders as an innovative workforce training program that’s successfully transformed over 6,000 young lives in Orange County.

Michael Konetzke, DPR Construction’s Southern California Business Unit Leader, states, “DPR believes in Hope Builders’ mission to empower young adults with mentorship and job skills training. Like the DPR team, we are working together to improve the industry by preparing its future leaders for the workforce.”

Under Michael’s leadership, DPR Construction and co-hosts Clark Construction Group and McCarthy Building Companies, raised program awareness and more than $155,000 in support of Hope Builders’ construction training program at the 2022 Builder’s Luncheon! At the luncheon, Michael shared his own “first day of work” story recaptured below.

Hope Builders is extremely grateful for DPR Construction’s generous investment in Hope Builders’ young adults seeking a pathway to prosperity as a Platinum sponsor of 10 Days for Launching Careers.
